    so if you use a tube amp, i'm guessing it would be harder, cause tube amps tend to have the 'sag' in the low end that loosens them up? like on a triple rec, if i kept the bass at noon, boosted the mids a fair amount and boosted the treble a bit, along with a fair amount of presence and backed off the gain, would that get kind sorta close?

    To tighten up a Mesa you need to boost the front of the amp. I use an 808 to do it (like every other person).

    I have my Road King tighter than any ENGL I have heard.....but of course the ENGL is that tight out of the box. But I like the "darkness" of Mesa.

    So to re-cap.....use a TS9 or an 808 in front of the amp and also a good gate to quiet things down. My other guitarist also has a Boss 6 band EQ next to the 808. the 6 band helps to fine tune things.

    Depends on which Mesa you're talking about of course. Recto's are known for having a big tight end, but things like the .50 Cal's, and Mark series are really tight and don't usually have a huge bottom end like Mesa's (unless you EQ it like mine, in which it's got a bit of a noticeable bottom end but not overwhelming)

    well my triple rec has more than enough bottom, i have an effects modeler that has a ts9 in it and it does seem to smooth it out and tighten up the tone a lot. i should look around for an EQ pedal, well, first i gotta get it retubed so the bottom end doesn't sound like total shit... thanks for the helpful advice guys!

    Like the 3rd post of the thread, man.

    Remember, too, to play similar figures to the tone you're comparing yourself to. My meaning: these 'djent' things have lots of accented and bent single notes and open strings, and fewer ringing and (ironically) palm-muted fifth voicings (power chords).
